Brother MFC-7340

 

The MFC-7340 is the cheapest product in Brother's refreshed line-up of mono laser multifunctions. It offers simplicity and cost efficiency in a no-non...

Good quality printing, small footprint, good price

No duplex, 14.4Kbps fax, inadequate paper output tray, no Ethernet

The MFC-7340 has a number of flaws and missing features that make it problematic for office use. No duplex, no Ethernet and an inadequate paper output tray are its key failures, but it delivers good quality printing and it is cost efficient.

2 years old and still running like a champ!

 

I have been in business for 11 years now and this machine has done SO much for my website design and development company. I am constantly printing invoices for clients or scanning items for my record keeping or scanning a drawing I created for a client...

Long lasting. Does everything that I need! I've printed almost 13,000 pages in 2 years (WOW!) and the drum is still going! Never had a single problem with this machine and it does everything for my design business I need

A bit loud, but that could be where it is on my desk. Other than that its perfect

Excellent all in one. Very durable and easy to setup.

 

Unbeatable for features and quality!

I own three MFC 7340's and one MFC 7840. I find them to be excellent all in ones. They are very durable, easy to setup and have solid software. I have purchased two refurbished and picked them up for only $129. Tough to beat at that price

Takes a few seconds for the laser to warm up

Brother MFC-7340 Multifunction Printer

 

I run Mac OS X.6. I purchased this machine as an in office stand-alone printer. I have a network printer and copier away from my desk. This machine has been a great find! It prints great with no hassle or jams...its fast. I was pleasantly surprised on...

Excellent all-in-one

When running mac and windows it will not print until windows suspended. Ink cartridge is hard to replace

Consumer review by:

Laser all-in-one small, versatile with solid features.

 

It's the right price for your home office or small business.

Full featured, easy-to-use and set up, laser all-in-one for the price of ink-jet. Printing supplies should last considerably longer and be far more economical to operate than ink-jet, too. Cool for home office, small business. Bonus software

Print quality is very good but not as excellent or crisp as a single function laser printer. The output tray is too small for regularly printing in large quantities, but it's okay for routine small stack

Brother MFC-7340 (multifunction, b/w, laser)

 

Consumer review by:

Surprisingly good!

 

Quite a workhorse. Bought this while my other Brother all in one went in for repairs after years of hard work. This is faster than the other & will become the principal all in one. Lots of copying done.

Easy To Setup,Easy To Use,Fast Operation

Brother MFC 7340 All In One

 

Brother have earned me as a customer like their laser printer so far

Got this from Newegg @ a steal during a presidents day promo sale. Easy to install and operate I have not had to change the ink or drum yet so I can't really comment on that. The copy and scan feature are above par from my old HP unit I have not used...

laser printer not color but then color adds more to the price unable to print both sides of a document on 1 side of a sheet of paper

Consumer review by:

7340 Nice for the Price

 

Good cost per print. Aftermarket toner is available for a much more reasonable price.

Good printing speed ; Good quality copys and prints ; easy set up ; straight forward software

document feeder scanner is slow ; scans are not totally straight

Consumer review by:

Linux Compatable (ish)

 

READ THE DOCUMENTATION BEFORE USE! the first impression was me botching the driver install because i didn't read all of the documentation before beginning. now that i've ironed that out i'm really enjoying the speed and simplicity vs my old inkjet...

VALUE ; solid construction ; linux drivers from Brother ; small footprint/size ; good all around speed ; hi-res prints are pretty

kinda bland looking ; waking from sleep takes a bit (or i'm impatient) ; push button scanning doesn't work w/ linux ; fax from file doesn't work w/ linux ; curls pages a bit (i use really cheap-o paper) ; no cup holder
